I have a Dell Inspiron 15r and a Dell v313w I purchased in November 2010, both are wireless and connected through a gateway/router that have been very great over the years but about a year or so ago I noticed each time I would try to print out multiple documents I could only get one document to print out, it could include one sheet or many sheets . Any others documents would be stuck in the print queue listed as " printing " but would never print out unless I restarted the computer then it would print out all documents one after another just as they had been entered complete with all sheets per document accounted for and in correct order.
After the printer had finished printing all the documents if I needed to print another document I would have the same headache all over again and the document would remain in the queue until I restarted the computer again.I'm not a spring chicken by any means and have to think logically went operating the computer or installing software so many of the technical jargon is something I really don't understand.
I have just installed the HP 4635 printer to my network. All devices were printing yesterday wirelessly. Today the laptop device has a print job that I have requested to delete. It has said "deleting" for two days and I can not get it "unstuck". each time I send a new print job to the que it goes in line "behind" the print job that is stuck in "deleting" mode. I have tried re-starting. re-booting, ctrl, alt, delete. nothing seeings to get this print job "unstuck" and deleted.
My 11 month old Ideapad failed to boot last night with error 'BL Initialize Library Error 0xc0000029'. Eventually a blue screen appeared saying that multiple start attempts had failed and the system needed repair.
As suggested I tried to use One key recovery but choosing restore to factory settings leads to self same failure.Sadly I have misplaced the recovery disc I created during a house revamp so cannot try that route.
Just got my Studio 15 today. So far so good. I thought Firefox was not compatible with the finger print reader, so far it's working for me with over 25 passwords already. My only concern so far is the keyboard flex!
I recently have ordered an M1330 but I have been looking at some of the user pictures that do not have the finger print reader. Is this because it is not standard on the laptop and do you need to pay extra? (Im talking about the NZ/AUS version [url] theres no option to include or exclude it like the US site).
Also is it possible to upgrade from the LCD to LED in the future, if so how much?
Well the GPU on my M1330 finally gave way tonight. (At least that is what believe is causing the colored lines anyway.) My warrenty expired last summer, but as I recall Dell extend the warrenty on the GPU 12 months past the orginal warrenty. I plan on giving tech support a ring tomorrow (or Monday, I'm not sure how much luck I'd have over the weekend). Any tips from those who have been through this? What should I expect? Motherboard replacement? Refurb replacement? Any input would be welcome.
i have tried updating my computer (vista OS) with the latest updates (for security update). i tried twice (which had me restart, and i did), and both times they failed. why is this? this has happened before.
If you're the type to watch the late stock tickers, you might have noticed that NVIDIA's stock just took a pretty big hit, down 24 percent to $13.56 -- that's because the company just informed investors that "significant quantities" of previous-generation graphics chips have been failing at "higher than normal rates," and that it's lowering its Q2 estimates due to pricing pressure. NVIDIA will be taking a $150M to $250M charge against earnings next quarter to cover the cost of repairing and replacing the affected chips, but didn't specifically announce what products were defective, just that they include GPUs and "media and communications processors." Laptop makers have apparently already been given an updated GPU driver which kicks in fans sooner to reduce "thermal stress" on the GPU, and NVIDIA says it's talking to its suppliers about being reimbursed for the faulty parts. That's great and all, but we'd really rather know which chips specifically are failing -- if you're serious about playing in the big leagues, you better come clean, guys.
For someone who has a 7900GTX which is getting "fevers" regularly, this angers me. Hopefully the "repairing and replacing" comes with new parts for laptops and customers new and old like Dell did with the LCDs.
i couldn't believe that dell has finally released new drivers for our Ati Mobility Radeon 4570!!
Release Date: 12 October 2009
I didn't see any benefit really in installing the the mobility modder drivers(was on 9.9). My COD4 was dropping to 20fps on occasions and I only play in 1280x720 with modest settings! I thought that game ran really well even on the Nvidia 8600Ms according to so many people. But COD4 runs pretty badly on my PC, gets my GPU to hit 88C even when I'm letting it breathe and all and makes me kind of depressed.
I uninstalled everything and installed these new Dell drivers. The drivers installed, but the CCC is messed up. See attached picture for the error I get when I try opening it. Clicking on "Advanced View" gets me nothing.. Nothing shows up at all. I reinstalled the 9.9 CCC ONLY, still the same error message.
Anyone else having the same problem? Could you atleast help me with why my 4570 is performing so poorly?
She has been wanting to make the windows 7 switch, however she only has 512MB ram in it, so she ordered a 2x1GB ddr2 667 Crucial kit off Newegg for me to install.
After it arrived I popped open her memory compartment and lo and behold there were two 512 sticks already in there. I was puzzled by this, so I installed the new ram and went into the BIOS, which reported that dual channel mode was running and there was only 1024MB of memory.
I naturally thought one of the memory slots was dead so I tried each stick in one slot at a time, each time it booted up with the exact same info, 1024MB of ram. From this I can only conclude that it simply refuses to actually run dual channel, despite both slots being perfectly functional.
I have flashed the BIOS, to no avail, and now have no idea what to do.
My Laptop is set up so I have to check my finger print in the Bios before I can long into windows. How can I remove this option? I have done the following
1. I updated the bios to the latest version 2. I have checked ever thing in the bois to find how to remove this option. I can't find it. 3. I want to sell this computer, but can't until I get this issues resolved.
I have recently purchased Vostro 3550 with Finger Print reader. After i updating all drivers and checked in dell diagnostic also. Nothing happen to no response for my reader. I purchased 07-05-02012.It haven't worked while i purchased itself and i updated all drivers
ST MICRO SCREEN DETECTION SENSOR ISN'T COMPATIBLE WITH THIS VERSION OF WINDOWS - ? Wat i need to do for this???????????
I have checked through installing Free fall data protection. it shows nothing.
I have a dell XPS l502x running on windows 7 home premium. I recently bought a 5550 wwan card ( Ericsson F5521gw 2XGNJ) for which i tried installing dell wireless 5550 driver. it was not successful and i got the message saying authentication failed and no compatible device detected!
Windows device manager identifies the card as "unknown device F5521gw" which probably means that the hardware is installed properly.
I have tried installing this [URL] .... driver multiple times and every single time i got a message saying "Driver installation failed. No compatible Dell Wireless HSPA Mini-Card has been found on this computer. Please insert hardware and restart the driver installation.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Windows Vista. The Windows is dead and always boots to a repair dialog that gives me only two options: reboot and shutdown. It also does that when trying to bot in Safe Mode. So I tried to boot on the recovery partition to try to recover my installation. The problem I have now is that the recover option needs my administrator password. I've tried 3 wrong passwords since I really don't remember it. After the third fail, I got a dialog telling me that my administrator account as been disabled! WHAT!! It disabled the only account I need to recover or reinstall!! How can I recover my PC now!!?
